Spirit Airlines and Lynn University Team Up to Launch Pilot Training Program

Aspiring pilots can now join the fast track to a rewarding career at one of the nation’s fastest-growing airlines while they finish college. Spirit Airlines and Lynn University announced the launch of the Spirit Wings Pilot Pathway program at Lynn’s Burton D. Morgan College of Aeronautics in Boca Raton, Florida. The collaboration is a first of its kind for Spirit, allowing students to attend a traditional university while gaining valuable experience toward a future career flying the carrier’s signature yellow planes.

Spirit Wings Pilot Pathway aims to expand the airline’s pipeline of professional pilots by offering mentorship, program guidance and a clearly defined path to become a Spirit First Officer. Lynn students can apply for the program after completing their sophomore year and obtaining a recommendation from a faculty member in the College of Aeronautics. If successful in Spirit’s interview process, they will receive a conditional offer of employment, a Spirit Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) and will be mentored as they work toward completing their degree program and the flight hours required for an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate.

Spirit flies some of the newest, most fuel-efficient aircraft in the industry across a network of 90+ destinations in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. Many more brand-new planes are planned for delivery in 2023, creating opportunities for First Officers to quickly upgrade to Captain. Spirit’s Pilots recently approved a contract that provides a significant pay increase and other enhanced benefits. Spirit also offers its Pilots industry-leading training and great quality of life.
